Creative shelving above the stairs adds entryway storage in a fresh way.
Shelving that sits on a staircase is another story. If your home has a relatively wide staircase eating up a chunk of your square footage, steal some of that space back by building compartmentalised shelves on top of them. You can have cubbies in different sizes for bags, shoes, books, baskets, the works. Now you won’t need to cut into a cramped foyer, as all the storage you need will be mere steps away. - pranali_save
